Science Week experiment a success 6 March 2007

A SCIENCE Fair last Friday marked the end of a successful Science Week at Rushen School.

Year 5 and 6 students selected their experiments before the half-team break and tested them in the run up to the week's finale.

The rest of the school attended to see their work and have a go themselves. Parents went along to the school in the afternoon. Head teacher Tom Thomson said the event was a 'brilliant success'.Rushen's young scientists at work
